Mrs. Elizabeth N. James, homemaker and widow of the late Edward James, Sr., was born on April 20, 1914, in Saint Mary's County, MD. She quietly transitioned from earth to glory, now in the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Tuesday, May 1, 2007, at 2 A.M. Mrs. James, the family matriarch, was the mother of 15 children, of which 12 are still remaining to carry on such a great legacy that she left behind. The life of Mrs. James was dedicated to serving her family, her church and her community. Her children rise up to call her blessed, her church call her faithful, and her community call her a pillar. Mrs. James enjoyed cooking and caring for her home and was known all over for her delectable desserts, such as her "Sweet Potato Pies", and her "Sock It To Me Cakes". Mrs. James resided at 1909 E. Chase St., for over 60 years until the most recent revitalization program of the East Baltimore Development Plan relocated many families. She was an exemplary example of a virtuous women, and her love and service to the Lord Jesus Christ manifested in her as a tower of faith, love, hope, truth, wisdom, strength and courage. She will truly be missed by all who knew her. Viewing will be held at the FAMILY OWNED MARCH FUNERAL HOME EAST, 1101 E.
